Darim Warehouse Cafe In Seoul

While walking through the trendy neighborhood of Gangnam District, you will come across the Daerim Warehouse, also called the “Brooklyn of Seoul”.

It’s the perfect spot to relax, built with wooden dĂ©cor and exposed brick walls. The building was a factory before it was converted into a cafĂ©, leaving the industrial style. Daerim Warehouse is quite expensive for the regular traveler but you will find everything here, from great coffee to tea.

And if you’re hungry pick one of the salads, pizza, or choose a pasta dish. And after fulfilling all your needs, make sure to check out their art gallery.
